Retro Mets Milk Commercial

From' s @michaelsclair 

Sure, you roll your eyes at commercials in the moment -- you mean I have to wait a few minutes for this? But give it a few years (or decades), and all of a sudden they become something sublime -- bizarre time capsules that make us ask, "Wow, did Bob Uecker really get us to buy more beer? Did our clothes and TVs really look so ugly? Just where is the beef?"

So let's hop in our trusty time machine and laugh at the weirdest, silliest, and most over-the-top ads from every big league team. We'll mostly be using spots that weren't produced by the team itself, because things are so much funnier when you have Kirk Gibson hawking a local boat show -- which, yes, you'll find if you scroll down below.

You can't beat "Meet the Mets," but a "Milk Kicks!" jam along with a chuggin' Darryl Strawberry is pretty good, too.
